Great Place To Stay
So glad that we decided to stay at St Margaret's. The owner was very friendly and told us all we needed to know about getting around on the local buses which was alot cheaper than going in the car. The large double room was very spacious and very clean as was the whole place. The breakfast is the perfect way to start your day, fresh and really well cooked. Really cant find any fault with this place, well worth a stay. Thanks for everything.

Excellent All Round
This B and B is excellent in all aspects. The location is good with a freshwater lake and the seafront nearby. It is well served by buses and nearby restaurants. The hotel is beautifully decorated and spotless throughout. The breakfast is delicious. Car parking is on the premises or on the road around the location. All this is at a very reasonable cost.

Grande chambre bien aménagée, pratique et confortable. Très propre. Très bien située : plage,canoe lake, bus , Pier et petit super marché à proximité immédiat. Très calme . Petit déjeuner anglais très copieux mais ma fille de 11 ans regrette l’absence du chocolat chaud. L’accueil reste froid , malgré les efforts de DANY

Southsea And The Mary Rose
Our four-night stay at St.Margaret's Lodge was in a very large, clean and well-decorated room. The mattress was comfortable and the bathroom facilities were adequate. Breakfast choices varied daily and the food was well presented. Perfectly sited just off a regular busroute and at night it is a very quiet street. The seafront is close and the park with boating lake was an unexpected extra. An excellent B&B for visiting the Mary Rose.

Southsea Castle - Hampshire - Castle

Southsea Castle - Hampshire - Castle

Distance 0.68 miles (1.08 km)
Southsea Castle was built by Henry VIII between 1544 and 1545 to protect Portsmouth against possible French invasion. Its revolutionary design provided for the most efficient use of guns in attack or defence now that artillery dominated warfare. In the early 19th century, the castle was substantially altered to accommodate extra guns and a larger garrison of 200 men. The most significant addition of this period was an underground tunnel around the moat, which you can still enter. The castle was only withdrawn from active service in 1960. In our amazing Time Tunnel the Ghost of the Castle's first master gunner guides you through the most dramatic scenes from the castle's eventful history.

Premiership side Portsmouth were founded in 1898 by a collection of businessmen, amongst them the first chairman of the club, John Brickwood, and the man who would become known as the 'father of the club', George Oliver. Pompey tasted their first success in the FA Cup in 1939 under legendary manager Jack Tinn, who had lead the side to two previous final defeats. It is Tinn who is credited with laying the platform for the consecutive championship winning sides of the late 1940's. Fast Fact: Peter Harris is Pompey's most successful marksman scoring 208 goals in 516 games in all competitions. Fast Fact: Serbia and Montenegro international Dejan Stefanovic is Pompey's record signing at 1.85million pounds.
